Forgot thyroid med: F notes: I'm on a trip for 3 days & forgot my levothyroxine. Is it ok to skip or should I try to get an emergency prescription? ANS: Did you not read the directions that came with the med that the pharmacist gave you? They are to be read and may save your ife. But anyway until then missing a few days will not cause any problem.
